Appreciating Hawaii in December

sitting and looking at the Hawaii Kai marina

Good Morning, God!

I just got an email from my brother, saying it was expected to RAIN there in Grass Valley for the next two weeks. I like rain. And we NEED rain. But, it is a lovely thing to sit outside in the “clear and glowing light” of December in Hawaii.

In fact, it is just lovely to be here. A fact that is far easier to APPRECIATE when I am sitting by the marina. Yesterday when I was inching my way OUT of Ala Moana shopping center I wasn’t focused on appreciating. Ah well.

I’m BACK, God, after my morning walk and trip to the Farmers’ Market. I love buying fresh produce — fresh herbs are undervalued. They are FULL of trace elements. And I couldn’t grow them in a pot until I discovered dehydrated chicken manure. Hmmm. The thought comes to me that I TOO require the manure of daily life to grow.

So, our formal education — classes etc. — would be a bit like chemical fertilizer? An interesting thought. And clearly the “living in the dorm” experience would be a mostly organic fertilizer. Then there is the whole question of POTS. I can look around me and see that we are all in one sort of “pot” or another. Some pots seem pretty small. Other pots look way too large. And just this morning, God, Kit was talking about some people blooming and others seeming semi-suppressed.

One last thought before I go off to the rest of my day, God. Each stand at the Farmers’ Market has many offerings. And we arrive and browse — appreciate and buy. Life is like that. Life is to be appreciated and consumed. Please, Help me appreciate Holiday Life!

Story teller,
